Lol, this is one of those cards I made and uploaded, but never quite got round to writing a post for!

Well it's out there now, and was actually for my niece's birthday in March last year, so it was about time it got an airing!  Sorry for the lack of post initially!

It's challenge day again over at MAWTT, and back to Team A and Christine is asking for

That said, I just made a card, lol!  I really love the Pink Gem toppers at the moment, so I went back to their store and purchased these adorable snowmen - cute or what!!!

Lots of layers made up this beauty!

and I even decorated the inside!
It's just so easy with these files!

Birthday Celebrations

It's nearing the end of November, and that means Christmas Break time for the DT over at Ooh La La, but before we go, we have one last challenge for 2016 and it's bee set by Wynn and is...

Birthday Celebrations

Cause Wynn celebrates her birthday at this time of year - Happy Birthday Wynn.

For my card I went back to the Everyday Occasion's CD and picked this sweet teddy bear!  Not too seasonal I know, with sunflowers, but a little bit of sunshine always cheers you up on these dark Winter days!

Don't know how it is with you, but up North it's freezing!  We had hail showers over the weekend and a cold northerly wind, Brrr indeed!

So once I tidied up the garden a bit, picking up loads of fallen leaves, and washed the car, what else was there to do but craft!

Today's card was made some time ago though and is for the latest Ooh La La Challenge set by Pauline and it's

Not one of my favourite themes I have to confess probably cause I'm never too sure what makes a card vintage, is it an old fashioned pic, the embellishments used or a colour scheme followed, so I guess we'll leave the interpretation up to you!

I went with an old sort of image - well who wears aprons like that these days???

Cute Animals

Seems a while since I posted anything for MAWTT, but that changes today, as a new challenge begins and we are looking for

Cute Animals

Don't think this one will be too hard for any of us so I'm guessing lots of lovely cute cards will be on display over the coming fortnight.

For my card, I nipped over to Pink Gem Designs again and bought this Autumnal topper - Pumpkin Patch - Available here.

I think quite a few of you know, I think hedgehogs are really cute, so I couldn't resist this little fellow for a lovely seasonal make!

Today it's Michelle's turn at being hostess at Ooh La La and she has chosen the theme of

Tiny Tots

For my card, I went back to one of my older Ooh La La CD's, (which is still available here), and made this sweet baby card.

The image and papers are from the Everyday Occasions CD, which truly contains a wealth of material and is one I turn to frequently as I know it won't disappoint!

Shades of Autumn

With the weather turning that bit colder we are definitely heading in to Autumn, that said, it was a lovely day yesterday and after church I headed into the garden and had a right good tidy!

This weeks challenge over at Ooh La La is a popular one at the moment, we are looking for

Shades of Autumn

Not quite evident in the trees yet, but I'm sure with a few more frosty nights they will begin to turn.

So for my card, I used the fishing files from  the Ooh La La CD - Yesterday's Memories.

MAWTT - Sketch Challenge

Today's challenge over at MAWTT is to use a super sketch drawn by the lovely Carole from Design Team A, and I don't know about you, but I love sketch challenges - probably my favourite!

So here is my card, using a super male digi from Di's Digi's which I got in their $1 sale a few months back - what a bargain! (Just checked folks - Sale still on!) Papers are a right mix from my scrap box and the hearts were bought last year in Germany!
